Carter Kieboom's name isn't that hard to spell, is it?
On Sunday, Sam Dykstra shared a picture on Twitter that showed that the Washington Nationals top prospect's last name was misspelled on both his clubhouse nameplate and on his Future's Game uniform.
Kieboom did not wear his uniform during warmups and batting practice, as he clearly needed a new jersey for the game. It's unfortunately for Kieboom, as this is his second Future's Game, and he's made an appearance in the majors. Something like this should have been checked multiple times over.
Of course Twitter caught wind of this, and has plenty of jokes to crack on the matter.
Here's another one.
You have to make the effort when spelling someone's name, as it shows a sign of respect for another human being. Thankfully, Kieboom was able to get the right jersey in time for the game on Sunday night.
Kieboom is having an incredible season in the minors, posting a .320/.431/.590 slash line, with 14 homers and 62 runs batted in. He's clearly ready and waiting for another chance to play with the Nationals.
Hopefully the Nats will have the right jersey waiting for him in the clubhouse whenever he's recalled to the majors.
